The BSH Teenage and Young Adult (TYA) Special Interest Group (SIG) have two new committee officer vacancies.

The TYA SIG works:

  • To promote the development of a national network of TYA haematology physicians encompassing both benign and malignant haematology to share expertise and promote high quality TYA research and clinical practice.
  • To develop international TYA haematology links to share practice and promote TYA research.
  • To identify areas for service evaluation and guideline development within the TYA community.
  • To focus early discussion on design of trials involving TYA patients with haematological disease. Further development of these trials would then be expected to follow the NCRN process.
  • To aim to become the expert body to advise NICE, commissioners and NHS England regarding TYA Haematology issues and service specifications via the BSH external affairs committee.
  • Subject to the approval of the Programme Committee, to hold educational sessions at the Annual Scientific Meeting of BSH

We would be grateful to have the expertise of haematologists with a specialism in non-malignant haematological disease, to enhance and expand the work of the TYA SIG.
